Ready to Go!!!!

Wow, it still does not feel real!!! Just knowing Solie Koket is coming home just rocks my world! I am so so happy and thankful.
Another great family passed court also the same day we did with our agency. Today my friend Stacey found out she will be going to pick up her baby girl also. We had another 2 really awesome families that had issues today and did not pass court. My heart is just breaking for them. Our prayers are with you guys. We went through a lot of "stuff" trying to bring Bianca home and it can feel so defeating at times. I guess that is why this time around it still does not feel real...hardly any drama as far as the actually process went. A true gift from God this round.
As for us, proud new parents again, officially as of Monday to another beautiful baby girl! You know I am dying to post her pictures, but our agency frowns upon that until we bring her home....I know, almost everyone else seems to post all of the great pics the day they pass court, but we will keep up the suspense!
Of course I am ready to get on a plane, as you might imagine. I know so many of you have asked and want to know when we are going to ET...I too would love to know. I have heard NOTHING from our agency since we passed, and even with more than a couple of emails have nothing back as far as confirmation on travel dates. I am trying not to be a freak...but I am. Big surprise. Now that I know Solie is ours...I want to be with her..big time! So for now we wait for some response so we can book airfare and get Bianca squared away with the grandparents.
This will be the longest I have been without the little short stack. Pretty sure Eric and I both will be kind of sick about that. The flight is so dang long though we could not even think about taking her...17 hours on a plane with a 2 year old...I don't think so. I am not totally insane!
I received one pic of Solie this past week from a family that traveled to pick up their adorable son....Thanks NEWMAN family! It is wild how much we LOVE those pics that people take for us! We are hoping to get more over the next 2 weeks as we have more families traveling this weekend! So awesome to see kids coming home! Love it!
I am posting some recent pics of Bianca...She has not been getting enough face time. I will say, there is a reason. She finally broke our digital camera while on an artistic rant several weeks ago...I bought a new one and I am not totally impressed. But, alas, she is adorable and so here she is!
A day in the life of a 2 year old!

This is Bianca one year ago...How quickly she has grown!

Thanks so much for your sweet offer. I really don't want you to have to take time out of your trip to figure all the details out. We have been very lucky to have traveling families send us pics. Thanks sweet of you! Hope your travel plans are coming together!
